Web and Scripting Add-on Module not available

This document (7018678) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 Service Pack 1 (SLES 12 SP1)


With a fully patched SLES 12 SP1 without a GUI (graphical user interface) the "Web and Scripting Module" is not available from the list of addons in YAST.


There is a mass PTF (Problem Temporary Fix) available from engineering:

In case installing the PTF is not an option there is a workaround available until an official patch has been released via executing:

SUSEConnect -p sle-module-web-scripting/12/x86_64/


The original dialog designed for the available addons was to small in size as the number of addons have grown since SLES 12 has been released.

Additional Information

A final solution for this issue will be provided by a regular update/patch.
